Birmingham’s own Sonny Jim drops some “dope” visuals to new track, “Purple Patch 5”.
Today’s Hip Hop Find was partly down to my dude at Instagrime showing me this jam in passing. I had previously heard little bits of Sonny Jim but after this track, I started delving into his back catalogue and discovered he had worked with the likes of Foreign Beggars, The Streets and “The High Plains Drifter” himself, Jehst. On this joint, Sonny Jim is lacing a boom bap style sample beat made by fellow Eat Good Records artist Kosyne. Purple Patch 5 has an engaging range of visual “stimuli” to back up a record with a great blend of lyrical artistry and fun bounce. It basically made me zone out to the passing variance of aroma that was in the air throughout London today while getting lost in Sonny Jim’s wordplay.
